Anyone have any experience/opinions on this Monoprice 10" "studio sub"?

They're claiming a $220 sub with a single 10" driver is able to hit 20Hz? At -10dB perhaps, but certainly not F3. That's the first I'm hearing of it though, so I don't have any experience with it.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

I guess it has been out for a while now, but haven't heard much besides monoprice's customer reviews. Noted the slot port out the back which you don't see much in low end subs. I currently have 2 AV123 X-sub 8" subs tucked behind my couch, but thought about looking to a single 10" (space for a larger sub is an issue).

Dual 8's to a single 10 might be a step backward in total output. The Monoprice may extend deeper (key word being "may"), but almost for sure the output would be less.

One of the 8 X-subs's been making some buzzing noises lately, and since there isn't anywhere to get them repaired any more, I've started to look into an alternative that won't break my bank & still fit in the room I'm stuck with.
